Colour Based Wedding Makeup Looks

Here’s a lowdown on the latest bridal makeup looks with a step-by-step guide.

Wedding Makeup Looks - Green

1. Green

How to get this look:

Step 1: For a clean slate, start off by applying a primer, concealer and foundation, in that order.

Step 2: Sweep green glitter eyeshadow over the lids and then dab the black shade on just your crease and blend it outward. Smudge with your fingers to create a smooth transition.

Step 3: Now, it’s time for some major eye drama. Glue on a pair of lightweight falsies to your lashes and ace those blink and blush moments.

Step 4: Since blushing all day is on the cards, you might as well look pretty while at it. Gently glide a pink blush over your cheekbones for a pop of colour.

Step 5: Keep your lips muted with a swipe of pinkish nude.

2. Brown

How to get this look:

Step 1: Begin with a blend of primer, concealer and foundation to achieve a smooth base.

Step 2: Dab some highlighter on the inner corner of your eyes to add dimension. Then sweep a little silver shimmer eyeshadow over the lids and merge it with a darker shade at the edges.

Step 3: Next up, create a winged eyeliner with a smudge-proof formula. Continue the drama with thick coats of mascara on your lashes to up the hypnotic eye game.

Step 4: Rosy cheeks are non-negotiable for Indian bridal makeup. Get it by gliding a red blush formula toward the high points of your cheek.

Step 5: To ensure your pout game is on point, swipe a creamy, glossy formula of brown lip shade.

3. White

How to get this look:

Step 1: Prep with a perfect blend of primer, concealer and foundation to achieve a smooth base.

Step 2: Starting from the inner corner of your eyes, drag a white eyeliner along your upper lash line and waterline.

Step 3: Sweep a lighter shade over the lids and blend towards your crease. Then move on to applying a darker shade from halfway up your eyelid towards the crease and smudge it to achieve an ombre effect.

Step 4: To further perk up your eyes, count on an intense pair of falsies as your one-weapon army.

Step 5: Finish off this bridal makeup look with a smooth swipe of creamy, red bullet across your lips.

4. Red

How to get this look:

Step 1: Start with a blend of waterproof primer, concealer and foundation. You don’t want to compromise on the waterproof bit, in case things get a little out of hand, emotionally.

Step 2: Define and fill in your brows with a brown eyebrow pencil. Then, using a smear-proof liquid kumkum, gently craft the red and white motifs along the brows.

Step 3: Apply red pigmented eyeshadow over your lids and flick out towards the brow bone to create a winged-out eyeshadow look. For a smoky edge, trace over it with a dark shadow and smudge it.

Step 4: Stroke your lash line with a black eyeliner and then progress to fitting in dramatic falsies.

Step 5: You’re almost there. Simply swipe a deep red matte across your lips and your traditional bridal makeup is now complete.

5. Pink

How to get this look:

Step 1: Start off with a blend of waterproof primer, concealer and foundation.

Step 2: Dab some highlighter on the inner corner of your eyes. Sweep a light pink eyeshadow formula all over your eyelids and blend well with a darker hue at the edges.

Step 3: Using a smudge-proof eyeliner, draw a winged line. Opt for triple-stacked lashes to make a stronger style statement.

Step 4: Ain’t no party without your highlighter! Dust a liquid based highlighter down the center of your nose and your cupid’s bow for a sculpted look.

Step 5: To balance the drama, mute your lips with a nude shade.

Step 3: Pick up your favorite kohl-mate and draw along the upper and lower lash lines. Haute eye drama? Check.

Step 4: Now, go blend-blend-blend with a liquid highlighter along your cheekbones for a luminous finish.
